Someone asked me yesterday how I feel about being alone for Christmas this year. I feel fine about it. Besides, I will NOT be alone. I will be celebrating with my best friend- my husband! Yes, it would be good to have our children and grandchildren here, but we’ve known for many years that having family members living all over the country has its consequences. We’ve enjoyed many, many Christmases together and have great memories. But times change, so this year we will have a quiet Christmas and reflect on our blessings. One of the greatest of those blessings is knowing that our children are happy and healthy, no matter where they are on Christmas Day.
